The Mindflight7 virtual reality experience is not only safe, fun, educational and inspiring it is also curriculum specific, focused on genuine learning opportunities, realistic career guidance across Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics subjects (STEAM) and highly engaging vocational training experiences. We also offer VR experiences designed to provide full inclusivity and accessibility for high school students of all abilities. We deliver our VR careers and education programs into schools across all Australian states and territories allowing high school students everywhere to make more informed decisions around their subject selection and subsequent future career direction. As demonstrated by the interactive experiences we offer, and the example of our own business, Mindflight7 also promotes entrepreneurship and digital economy jobs in IT, project management, software design, industrial design and game design to students. While the majority of our VR experiences are attached to STEAM curriculum, we also offer practical workplace training experiences providing a virtual window on work.
Our research based virtual reality model is focused on STEAM jobs of the future, providing educational VR experiences and promoting career options to students that are based on need and required jobs of tomorrow. In this way, we help high school students find their worlds.
Mindflight7 has created a number of VR programs and delivery models that allow us to be fully adaptable to the needs of any school in any part of Australia.
Our incursion model has our flight crew visiting your high school with a Flight (session) for your students that can be focused on one area of curriculum for a single class of students (eg. Biology class) or multiple Flights in a day covering a range of STEAM career experiences for an entire year group of students seeking career guidance. We are highly organized and specifically equipped to offer customized Mindflight7 experiences based on the needs and focus of the high school and its students or we can present our own pre-structured multi-experience program developed by our Mindflight7 team of educators and career specialists.
While our virtual reality mobile incursion model is a popular delivery choice for school based career education and learning, we also have a number of additional delivery models for schools including long term integrated educational and career programs that help students select subjects of interest and guide their career pathway.

Using VR technology acts to fully immerse students in their learning by simulating trips to exciting places, connecting them with ‘experts’ in their field and providing virtual ‘hands on’ learning opportunities that may be otherwise difficult for schools to offer. We eliminate many of the classroom boundaries relating to interaction and distance and allow our students to immediately explore a range of artificial worlds, moving around and within it, and interacting with virtual features, items or people. This experience feels nothing like work and students enjoy the learning process itself, increasing motivation and attention.
Our experiences are designed to allow students to travel to far off places on ‘virtual’ field trips. Students we work with might find themselves in any number of exciting and challenging scenarios, including performing open-heart surgery, being thrust into the International Space Station (ISS) for a surreal, weightless space-science focused astronaut experience or studying the oceans in an environmental science career focused ocean acidification experience. They might be asked to compose music using abstract shapes that can be visually built and arranged, introduced to various ‘experts in their field’ or meet each other as an avatar group discovering the amazing collaborative and connecting possibilities that VR can provide. By experiencing the range of possibilities that virtual reality allows, students are compelled to look towards the future - one that may even consider a career in VR programming and development.
